Galileo colt cost 150,000 guineas as a yearling. Friendless in market recently on debut at Chelmsford but finished a promising third (runner-up has won since). Improvement likely and yard has 25% winning strike rate with 3yo's at this venue.

Nicely bred Medaglia D'Oro colt who has shown ability on both starts. Third on debut in Newbury maiden last month then just caught at Ripon (1m3f) last time. Grenadier Guard fourth that day has won since and reoposes here.

Archipenko filly who has shown little in two middle-distance novice events to date and looks out of her depth in this company. Better chance once handicapped after this run.

Forecast

Dubai Tradition (1/1), Dante's View (7/4), Monica Sheriff (3/1), Grenadier Guard (7/2), Ozark (100/1)

Verdict

There should be little between Grenadier Guard (for last year's winning trainer-jockey team) and Dubai Tradition at the weights on their running at Ripon earlier this month and in a decent contest both have claims. Monica Sheriff showed determination to score at Haydock last time and carries her winner's penalty. She has every chance, but slight prefernce is for DANTE'S VIEW who did little worng when third on debut at Chelmsford and should take a big step forward with that experience to call on.
  1. Dante's View
  2. Grenadier Guard
  3. Dubai Tradition
